The 2021 World Series of Poker is moving along in Europe as the tournaments and winners keep on rolling in. In this week’s poker news, we’re recapping a few of the biggest results from this week’s action.
Le Dantec Wins World Series of Poker Europe Six-Max Event
Romain Le Dantec has joined a growing list of winners from the 2021 World Series of Poker series. He was competing in the €10,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em six-max event and emerged victorious at the end of it all. He picked up a cool 207,267 Euros in total earnings from his placement along with the gold bracelet in the event.
It happened to be the first piece of hardware that he has ever won throughout his poker career up to this point. He has been close in a number of cases but hadn’t come away with a win until now. A few days before this occurred, he actually got to the final table at a separate WSOP event and finished in fifth place. The win netted him $20,054 but he was clearly hoping for more.
Le Dantic also picked up 420 Card Player Player of the Year points for the placement, moving him inside the top 500. It was only his second recorded score of this year.
Andrian Wins World Series Of Poker Europe Bracelet For Italy
As the World Series of Poker Europe series trucks along, Simone Andrian was able to pick up a huge win for his career and country. He participated in the €1,650 buy-in six-max no-limit hold’em event and ended up picking up his first-ever gold bracelet. On top of that, he also collected $177,650 in earnings that he picked up.
It was definitely the largest score of his poker career as the previous career-high was back in the Euro Poker Million event, which saw him walk away with $4,000 in earnings. This recent win wasn’t just big for him, though, it was great for Italy. This was the 12th overall bracelet that was won for the country in poker history
Other notable poker players that got close to winning this event was Julien Sitbon, who finished in 11th place. Sonny Franco finished in 15th and Josef Snejberg ended as the runner up.
Lyubovetskiy Claims World Series of Poker Europe High Roller Victory
Andrey Lyubovetskiy has conquered the 2021 World Series of Poker Europe €25,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em high roller event. He had to overcome a field of 72 total entries to win the gold bracelet but was rewarded with €518,430 in prize money.
In addition to the money and bracelet, he earned 588 Card Player Player of the Year points. Because it was his first qualified score of the 2021 year, he didn’t make a tremendous leap up the standings. He also grabbed 311 PokerGO Tour points, though.
Joni Jouhkimainen finished as the runner up in the event, earnings $358,865 in winnings. Tom Aksell Bedell rounded out the top three with his third-place finish, reeling in $247,414 in earnings.
